From Media to Metaphor: Art About AIDS
Can art save lives?
Not directly. But it can help the rest of us live.
From Media to Metaphor: Art About Aids chronicles the visual conversation in which artists reflected on the AIDS epidemic in 1993 during the height of the deepening and ongoing catastrophe. Bound by a green and copper prismatic cover, the exhibition catalogue includes a dialogue between Robert Atkins and Thomas W. Sokolowski on the art world’s role in invoking the American psyche of the time, a pop-out timeline of the AIDS crisis, and full-page renditions and descriptions of works by dozens of artists from the groundbreaking exhibition.
